Our Approach to Wound Care

At Western Wisconsin Health, we focus on an integrated team approach to healing. Our goal is to heal the whole person, not just the wound.

Each client receives customized treatment based on individual needs. Wounds are caused by many things, and fixing the cause leads to successful healing.

We pride ourselves in our ability to be flexible and accommodating with every client. Chronic wounds can be disruptive to every day life. That’s why we work with our wound care center clients to develop treatment options that will not only heal the wound, but also make their lives easier.
